Our values

About Us

Our stores are made up of Managers, Assistant Managers, 3IC’s, Key Holders and Sales Advisors. At Kathmandu we believe in recognising the strengths in our team and developing them to take on more senior roles within the business, hence building on their retail career. Several newly created positions over the past few years have ensured we are adapting to an ever changing retail environment and giving our team the best chance at personal development.

Our New Zealand Support Office is based in Heathcote Valley in Christchurch and is where all our products are dreamt up and designed by our equipment/apparel designers & merchandisers. This also houses the support departments such as Supply chain, Finance, Operations Support, Information Services, Marketing, Store Development and Human Resources.

Our Australian Support Office is based South Melbourne and is home to a range of support departments including Operations, Business Development, Sustainability, Marketing, Online, Human Resources, Store Development, Visual Merchandising, IT and a small Product team.

Live the Dream

For us the dream is individually defined. It may be that moment of escape on Friday at 5pm as you leave the office for a weekend of adventure. Packing up the family and car for a holiday along the coast. Seeing those hard-earned savings turn into an around the world ticket to destinations unexplored and fitting your essential world into a backpack. Finding a weekend when everyone is free to play, sleeping under the stars, reaching the summit, or simply making time for friends. Whatever the dream, it’s about getting out there and having fun – however you define it.

Want to work in Retail?

Kathmandu’s Retail employees enjoy generous product discounts and the opportunity to participate in staff incentives with some great prizes, as well as enjoying the same benefits as our Support Office employees.

We also offer an extensive training program to our Retail team, including practical instore, group and individual, detailed and thorough induction training, Individual Development Plans, and Management Development Programs.
